Risedronate Pharmacology Podcast

On this podcast episode, I cover risedronate pharmacology, adverse effects, drug interactions, and much more.

There is a strict administration procedure with risedronate which is designed to reduce adverse effects and enhance absorption. I discuss this in the podcast.

Many medications may cause osteoporosis and may precipitate treatment with risedronate. Corticosteroids and excessive thyroid hormone replacement are two examples.

Patients should remain upright (sitting or standing) for at least 30 minutes following administration to reduce the risk of esophagitis and ulceration.
